Basically since I've been living on my own, I've been with Alex. We began dating right before summer and that's when we spent most of our time together going through the honeymoon phase. It's crazy to think about but we've created so many summer traditions that we look forward to every single year. It's easily one of the many reasons why summer is my favorite season of the year.
Of course some of our summer traditions include PIFA, going to the Del Mar Fair, and some kind of vacation, but one of our most underrated traditions is going to Wonderspaces. The first year that Wonderspaces came to San Diego was in 2017, a year after Alex and I started dating. There wasn't a theme their first year but in 2018 it was 'with creative license' and this past year it was 'in common'. It's been special to see Wonderspaces grow and begin its legacy and footprint in San Diego. You might've heard of it or seen it on Instagram since it's one of those really cool aesthetically pleasing exhibits that lots of people go to just for the pictures. Of course we grab some cool pictures while we're there but we really try to piece together the meanings of the pieces and how it ties into the overarching theme.
Coincidentally, we also seem to go every year before we head on our summer vacation. This year was before our trip to Spain, last year was before our trip to San Francisco, and 2017 was before our trip to Costa Rica. It's a pretty amazing send off/ last thing to see in San Diego before participating in our epic summer adventure. If you're in San Diego during mid-summer, I definitely recommend taking the time to check out Wonderspaces and getting in touch with your inner artist. A pretty cool feature is that they always include a VR exhibit that takes artistry to the next level. There's other interactive pieces that connects and brings out some of your interpersonal thoughts. It's 100% worth the cost of a ticket and a very cool summer tradition.
Since I was a little girl, writing was always my go- to way of expressing myself and escaping from the rest of the world.
